BEDFORD, Mass., June 25, 2002 — RSA Security Inc. (Nasdaq: RSAS) announced today that it is working with BEA Systems (Nasdaq: BEAS), the world’s leading application infrastructure software company, to provide support for BEA’s new WebLogic Platform 7.0Ã¢â€ž?, the industry’s first unified application infrastructure platform, within the RSA ClearTrust® Web access management solution. The announcement furthers a long-standing collaboration between the two companies to deliver a centralized secure application infrastructure to BEA customers. RSA Security is the only security vendor with a three-star designation in the BEA Star Partner Program.
“Enterprises are using the Internet in more complex ways than just a few years ago, and are relying on the Web and corporate intranets and extranets for communicating internally and with partners and customers,” said Erik Frieberg, director of product marketing, BEA Systems, Inc. “RSA Security’s commitment to support BEA WebLogic in future versions of RSA ClearTrust software will help provide joint customers with more effective access management and enhanced user experience with single sign-on capabilities.”
BEA WebLogic Platform 7.0 is designed to be a unified, simplified and extensible software infrastructure that helps to increase productivity and lower the cost structure of enterprise IT organizations. The RSA ClearTrust Web access management solution is designed to be an easy-to-deploy, rules-based solution that centrally controls and manages user access privileges to Web-based resources based on definable user attributes, business rules and security policies. RSA ClearTrust software is engineered to integrate with BEA WebLogic to share user names and access privileges in order to provide seamless single-sign-on (SSO) to users accessing corporate portals, applications servers and other protected Web resources. BEA also uses RSA BSAFE® Crypto-J encryption software to help incorporate security options into its BEA WebLogic ServerÃ¢â€ž?.
“Web-based IT architectures require easy-to-administer, reliable, Web access management solutions,” said John Worrall, vice president of marketing at RSA Security. “For e-business initiatives to succeed, companies need their Web access management systems to provide standards-based interoperability to ensure vital online assets are easily managed, secure and accessible to their customers, partners and employees.
